Google Buzz To Get Better Controls To Reduce 'Noisiness' [google.com]
We’ve heard loud and clear that buzz in your inbox can get noisy -- we feel it too, and we’re working on two features to help with this:

1) Settings to control what gets sent to your inbox

2) Explanations for why posts get sent to your inbox and a “Mute” link


We’re testing these features and making sure they work in all 50+ Gmail languages right now, so they should be ready to launch in the next few days.

yes, I removed mine too. Even after I told google I didn't wanna try buzz.

goog: hey you want buzz?
me: NO
goog: ok here you go I've auto installed it for you

Yep @J_RaD, I found out only later that in addition to "NO" I had also to click "Turn Off Buzz" at the bottom of the screen... raw deal.

has anyone tried following a feed like mashable on buzz? you'd be lucky to see any of your friends conversations for the sheer amount of updates they have!

- and actually not checked if its still around, synced it with twitter and forgot about it!
